. >> i want to pick up again with pete. response to a lot of folks has been concern, look at israel. they have men and women serving equally over there. without incident. forget just women in combat. what would be so different in this country if we did god forbid have to have a draft where our sons and daughters both were told they had to go fight and do it along other genders? >> i don't think it's a going to happen or b necessary. but i think from where colonel mcsally and i are coming from are different perspectives. she through in combat. air force are open to 99 perts of everyone in the air force. there's only a few special ops units available to women. in the army i am an infantry men we had units different jobs to do not more important just different. on the ground the requirement as far as physical requirements are a little bit different. when you draw these distinctions. it's not about having women in combat. colonel mcsally has been in combat val rousely. there's a difference between being in combat and unit that is to sustained combat days weeks months and years. it has n

: israeli border is increasingly dangerous as unrest rises in egypt. the israel response commando units have its handful, tracking smugglers and refugees trying to cross the border. our own leland vittert joins us with the unit never before seen footage. >> reporter: pretty incredible, megyn, what she is guys do on the border inside the sinai peninsula. and they're using the lawlessness to be able to rearm, regroup and using that launching pad on the border to launch attacks against israel. seeing the surveillance video, smugglers use old-fashioned camel trains and to move into israel. the organizations are coming are an army and we're ready to go to war explains the commander unit. a rapid reaction horse seen here training to keep the number of al-qaeda fighters and jihad and other militants from taking over the sinai peninsula from coming across this 120 mile long border. for years, the only thing separating the egyptian-israel border is the road we're riding on now. the egyptian revolution changed things and a steel reinforced fence topped with barbed wire and heavily armed fighters read
released from israel prison. and our former vice-president in the new book calls al-jazeera feisty and relatively independent. feisty, that's what that is, megyn. >> megyn: you're feisty, too, dennis. >> thanks a lot. >> megyn: up next, vice-president biden is launching a gun controlled road show at the same time chicago's mayor is now very publicly and very severely pressuring banks who do business with gun makers not to do so. he's going directly to banks like bank of america saying don't have anything to do with these gun makers. we'll have a fair and balanced debate whether that's appropriate. plus as many of us head to the gym to try to shed pounds, one group of clubs is using a unique approach to try to attack members, and this was a bit of a surprise. living with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis means living with pain. it could also mean living with joint damage. humira, adalimum, can help treat more than just the pain. for many adults, humira is clinically proven to help relieve pain and stop further joint damage. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, in
